About the English test and certficate

The EnglishScore test is delivered on a mobile phone, so it requires different security measures and rules.

We use security features such as face monitoring technology through your smartphone’s selfie camera. You must be alone in a quiet place with your whole face clearly in the camera during the test.

These rules help give you and organisations confidence that your results are accurate and reliable.

To take the test and purchase a certificate, you will need to turn on your test security.

Once the test is complete, EnglishScore awards you with an internationally recognised CEFR level from A2 to C1 and a more detailed score between 0 and 599 aligned to the CEFR framework. This is a recognised global standard for describing language levels. You can use your CEFR score to compare results with tests such as IELTS, TOEIC and TOEFL.

The British Council EnglishScore Professional Certificate is recognised by leading employers and education institutions around the world.

You can use a Professional Certificate to help advance your career, including applying for a job or to enhance your CV.

EnglishScore is also available for businesses, universities and colleges that are looking to conduct English tests at scale. Learn more here:

What's really annoying is that the speaking test has so many problems. While I'm trying to listen to the video it would pause every time, so the time is gone and I would not be able even to record my voice!

I tired it out of curiosity. Actually it's pretty good and smooth. Of course there are a few things that can be improved. I wish I could see the numbers of questions in each sections because it'll help the user to allocate the timing. In this way, one can either rush or take time. Additionally, I wish there was a detailed breakdown for each competency section rather than an overall Level Grade. It would have been more useful if each section has number of incorrect, correct answers and %, etc.
